We have created a 64 bit captive application on AIR.

We want to create a setup and prompt an automatic update on running the application.

Can you suggest how to create an auto update setup for cative AIR applications ?

I might misunderstand the question, but I think one approach would be using an URLRequest when the app starts, to check a variable for whether you should show a prompt or not. Then in your customized alert box have a button that leads to the app in App Store/Google Play where your customers can update the app.

Hi @mikehorton

The project looks promising. Do you have the steps on how to integrate it with existing project. I just created a new project and added all source code but this does not seem to work.

Do I need to import it in some other way ?

Hi yashy2823074​. I have not implemented the code into my own project yet so don't really have any steps to give.

I also found another project for Captive Updating on Google Code. This one looks easier to implement if you watch the video below he gives instructions.

Project Files

Google Code Archive - Long-term storage for Google Code Project Hosting.

Hi mikehorton

I tried both project but there are certain files missing in both projects. Due to which I was not able to compile them with my code.

Can someone give it a try and check these can be used for auto updating ?

Or can we use something else ?
